2019 Fantasy Outlook
Laureano burst onto the scene in August, turning heads with his bat and cannon of an arm. The 24-year-old quickly turned into Oakland's everyday center fielder and finished the season with a 129 wRC+ -- a mark that would have tied for fourth with Tommy Pham among qualified MLB center fielders. Granted, he had a 28.4% strikeout rate and .388 BABIP, which suggest he was playing a little over his head. Even when factoring in regression, Laureano still looks the part of an everyday player, especially given his defensive value. He hits the ball to all fields and did not show significant lefty/righty splits at Triple-A or in the majors, so he should hit at least .250 with double-digit home runs. A plus runner, Laureano was caught just three times on 21 stolen-base attempts last season, so he should push for 15-to-20 steals if he stays relatively healthy. Given his strong debut, he won't be available in the end game, but is a reasonable OF4 in 15-team leagues. Read Past Outlooks

Could get rehab at-bats
OFOakland Athletics
Lower Leg
August 22, 2019
Laureano (lower leg), who's been able to perform baseball activities without discomfort in recent days, may get some at-bats with High-A Stockton prior to activation, Ron Kroichick of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
ANALYSIS
Laureano has already deemed himself ready to go after an extended stay on the injured list, but manager Bob Melvin confirmed Wednesday that there could be one final component to his rehab program. The talented outfielder would probably log no more than a couple of minor-league games before the team opts to activate him.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
One of the top pop-up prospects of 2016, Laureano capped his breakout campaign by wowing scouts with consistent loud contact in the Arizona Fall League. This brief yet impressive showing helped alleviate concerns about batting averages over .400 on balls in play at stops at High-A Lancaster and Double-A Corpus Christi. Laureano's combined .319/.428/.528 slash line will not be sustainable as he moves to more neutral hitting environments and his BABIP normalizes. The general consensus, however, says he has at least an average hit tool, which, coupled with plus speed and a good eye at the plate, might be enough for him to make it as an everyday player. He stole 43 bases at a 75.4 percent success rate last year, but his speed projects more comfortably in the 20-steal range over a full season against big league batteries. That speed could be complemented by average raw power. He also walked 70 times in 116 games last year and might profile atop a mediocre lineup.
